Simplified Forms - David Ridgway & Pete Kuentzel

David Ridgway & Pete Kuentzel

Free to the Public

06/15/18 – 07/13/18

Simplified Forms

David Ridgway - Paintings
Pete Kuentzel - Ceramic Sculpture
This gallery show brings together painter David Ridgway and ceramicist Pete Kuentzel. While both artists use seemingly simple forms--a rectangle, a triangle or a circle-- they create lush, complex compositions on canvas or clay.
David has a unique approach with landscapes: he initially removes any signs of present day, like power lines or cell towers. Then, he simplifies the form and intensifies the color. His skies become heavy white rocks, gliding by a farm barnyard scene without the creatures that inhabit those spaces. Portrayed in rich velvety purples and reds, we now see a bunch of simplified forms that evoke a barnyard.
Pete's approach to his ships and tankers again use the simplified form of a rectangle, a triangle or a circle to create the form of a ship. A rectangle for the ships stack and a circle for a porthole and perhaps a rectangle for the cargo hold. Pete's color vocabulary is filled with sun drenched yellows, reds and blues. 

These artists showcase individual talents (David’s painting and Pete’s ceramic sculptures) while pairing beautifully.
Reception for the artists Friday, June 15th 4-7 pm
Artist Walk Through the show with Pete Kuentzel: Saturday,June 23, 11-1 pm

The Wild Side Series: Kwiaht: The Secret Life of Blackmouth Salmon


When juvenile Chinook salmon congregate in the San Juan Islands each summer, not all of them are headed for the ocean. Many remain, feeding and growing in the islands for up to three or four years. Resident Chinook, often called Blackmouth for their characteristically dark gums, have long played an important role in the winter diets of orcas and people, but they in recent years their numbers have been falling. What do they eat all winter? Where do they go when they mature? Why are they in decline?  Russel Barsh studies the diet and growth hormones of Blackmouth, working in partnership with colleagues at WDFW, NOAA, and Long Live the Kings.
